Cycas debaoensis

Darold Petty

Recommended Posts

I would like to sell this cycad.  It is 5.5 years from seed, the caudex is 3 inches diameter, and it currently is holding 7 green fronds.  I have grown it in my greenhouse, in a 6x9 inch "tall 1-gallon" pot. My greenhouse glazing is  about 84% light transmission so SLOW acclimatizing to direct sun will be necessary.

I wish to sell this cycad because I suspect that it needs warmer temperatures and brighter light than my cool, foggy SF microclimate, which is totally dominated by the marine influence.  This is a pity, because I find it most attractive.

The price is $200 plus $20 for packaging and shipping to any address in the 48 states.  (It may take me a few days to obtain a suitable box!  :mrlooney: )

I accept PayPal, send me a PM for my actual email address.   Thanks !

That is one healthy looking daeboensis. It is holding a ton of leaves for a 3” plant. It obviously loved your greenhouse.

Very impressive plant at a very reasonable price! Much, much larger than the four I have which are 3+ years old.

Every year at this time I hold my breath (metaphorically speaking) and hope that no leaf-chewing insects find the developing new fronds on my 3 in-ground Cycas debaoensis. This year I lucked out and they're all developing intact. I love the apple-green shade of the new leaves. This is the same leaf from two angles. I got this plant and three others from a North Texas supplier of cold hardy palms several years ago. I believe the seed source was ColdPlant in China. They're doing well in semi-shade here in suburban Sacramento.
